In 2019/20, funding for Targeted Participation Program is being provided as a joint initiative between the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and Healthway.
Each year, the targeted priority populations may change, dependent on government priorities, policy objectives, and assessment of community need. These will align to the department’s strategic plan and Healthway’s high priority target groups.
The department and Healthway are seeking applications for projects that create quality, affordable sport and active recreation opportunities with a focus on engaging the evidence based low participation groups.
Projects are required to increase participation in physical activity and encourage pathways into community sport or active recreation. These opportunities should also provide a platform to promote the importance of healthy lifestyles and create healthy
environments to support participation.
Projects that can provide evidence of collaboration with other community service providers and/or sport and community groups are encouraged to apply.
